Most of us are well-off individuals with jobs, enough means to travel the world and make good choices. Why do we act like animals who can be led into the butcher's stable in herds with a free bagel and a koozie?
Are we dumb? Are we frugal? How do we prevent ourselves from being tricked to listen to the unwanted propagandist lecture for a free t-shirt in the end, and remind our foolish reptile brain to chill and let the prefrontal cortex make decisions instead..?
